5 Geeky Pies to Celebrate National Pie Day

Happy National Pie Day!

I’ll be honest, I’ve always celebrated dessert pies on Pi Day (March 14) — shame on me! Pies deserve their own day, and that day is today, January 23.

I love a good pie as much as the next gal — we even served pie at our wedding! But this year, I’ve fallen in love with the trend to decorate the crust. How?
Just cut a couple shapes or designs out of extra crust using cookie or pie cutters, use cinnamon to add a pattern or design to the top, or even cut and shape a dimensional design out of the crust. The possibilities are endless! And while I am by NO MEANS a pie baking expert, I have had fun baking some new geek eats and learning tips, tricks, and finding inspirations from the Pie Goddess, also known as @ThePieous on Instagram. You MUST check out her amazing creations.

If you’re in a baking mood, celebrate the day by trying out one of my geeky pies.

1 — Star Wars Death Star Pie

That’s no moon… Find the template to make your own Death Star pie, and wow your friends with your pie baking Jedi powers.

2 — Captain America Mini Apple Pies

If you’ve been watching along for the Marvel Movie Marathon to prepare for Avengers: Endgame (you should be!), then this is the perfect treat for your Captain America movie night. Bonus — mini pies make everything cuter.

3 — Game of Thrones House Targaryen Pie

All you need to make this lovely Mother of Dragons pie is a stencil, a bit of cinnamon, and egg wash. Time to get baking — for the throne, of course.

4 — Hogwarts Pie Pops

No one said pie had to be eaten with a fork? Take your magical pie on the go with Harry Potter pie pops!

5 — Captain Marvel Pie

This pie is HIGHER, FURTHER, FASTER than any you’ve tasted before. Find the stencils and instructions to bake your own here. Bonus — this one is super easy!
